Mobisante – 2016 - 2018

Principal Software Engineer, Medical Hardware

  • Formed a agile team and helped create the culture and agile process to unify our skills
  • Hired a team of engineers from diverse backgrounds such as the Test team, QA, Business Analyst and Software Engineers.
  • Worked with Product Managers to envision the best path forward for our product. Translated visions into a distilled direction that would be consistent and clear.
  • Leading status meetings to bring our team together and up to speed on everyone’s work.
  • Designed architecture for portable ultrasound system
  • Created Interfaces for hardware API’s to integrate systems from many different hardware venders.
  • Created architecture for cloud archiving and retrieval of ultrasound data. The data was collected in a way that would lend itself to being useful to LSTM Neural Networks.
  • Rapid prototyping of software and hardware for bringing a product to market
  • Worked with HoloLens to develop proof of concepts for the future of medicine
  • Created industrial designs in CAD, 3D printed designs and built proof of concepts to show investors

Hunter Engineering – 2012 - 2016

R&D Engineer - Computer Vision, New Product Development

  • Creation of system for measuring wheel dimensions and detecting features such as installed weights
  • HPrimary focus on the algorithms for using the laser blobs and determining rim profiles from the images that the camera system captures. This was used to replace the manual dataset arms.
  • To decipher data from images I used probabilistic learning algorithms to merge artificial intelligence and computer vision into a product for the company.
  • The improvements our team made were a huge success, and they helped increase sales of the Balancer product significantly.
  • Contribute design ideas toward patents and future products for the company
  • Evaluation of new stereo vision based technologies
  • I created a system of measuring runout and detecting other features, which we've patented, using rim profiles and an average profile to determine features on the wheel.
  • I helped our lawyers evaluate patents for determining what we can create. I also discussed new ideas with lawyers to determine if the ideas would be new and novel ideas.
  • New product development from Design and Research to Development, Beta Testing and Production 3D Design of STL files both programmatically and by CAD for use with our 3D printer
  • I created a calibration procedure for manufacturing of the camera based laser measurement system to determine the exact relationship between laser and camera of each configuration.
